Thanks for the T-shirt

Thanks for the cool UWOL T-shirt - I'm really going to have so much fun explaining to everyone how to pronounce "Ein byd ni, gweledigaeth chi" but now - how on this dear earth do I pronounce this 我らの世界、君の視感 ?!!! - could we have some audio here? Pleeeze..

Hey Marj

Well done on the t-shirt they were some great critiques and you certainly deserve it. I think you'll have more chance with the Chinese than the Welsh! I grew up only 30 miles from Wales and wouldn't know where to start even if I look at the phonetics. Its all those throaty noises that do it.

Anyway I hope we'll see you picking up a camera and joining us all next year Marj !? You need to strengthen the saffy contingency!!

Hey Marj,

Congrats on snaggin the t-shirt.

Great feedback is a hallmark of this film challenge. I think if you look back at our first films to these final films you can see how much everyone has improved. That all comes from getting out in the field shooting, and getting feedback on what works and what doesn't.

There will be a little lull until we pick back up again in February but don't hesitate to put up a post with any questions, comments or suggestions.

Hope you jump in this next round. You live in a beautiful spot of the world, I hope you share it with us!!

Hello Marj

It's a pleasure to have you aboard and thanks for your comments to our films as well. You deserved that T-shirt for your big effort in commenting the films.

Hope you will stay with us in the future too. I have a friend who is also supporting the uwol-group: http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthread.php?t=108639
She's already got some requests to join in for next year, maybe you could do the same? We need new players to come along.

Best Regards
Per Johan

mat has been working like crazy on this design...i think it has greatly enhanced his mastery of Mandarin.

of course, i charged him with another large design challenge..."here you go, mat, stuff all these languages onto one shirt, but first load up your computer with lots of new fonts and also communicate with several other folks to get the language just right...."

that's the challenge within the Challenge!

i'm sure as soon as he's done with the design, he'll post it. i've seen the prototype and it's uber-cool!

it would be great to have two regular players from South Africa. fire up that camera, Marj, your lurking days are over!

Hi Marj,

Thanks so much for taking the time to comment on the films. Please jump in, the water is fine (as long as you don't end up swimming with the sharks)! It would be great if you could join us in February for the next year of UWOL. I have been to East and West Africa- I used to study primates- but never South- one of these years. In the meantime, I look forward to your video giving me a vicarious experience there. Welcome to UWOL officially!

Ruth

Thanks to you all - I really appreciate your kind words, warm welcome and your encouragement to join in next year. Ruthís comment, about the water being fine, struck a cord because I have really watched wistfully but have had serious time constraints this year. I have felt much like a kid holed up in a classroom while the rest are outside having fun in the pool. It was that nasty tank next to it that kept me at it! Anyway I have a family that will definitely pick me up hands and feet and throw me in I donít enter in Feb. - so I guess you will have another saffy on board next year for sure.
